Michael Blake
Saxophonist Composer Arranger


Charlie Hunter Trio "Live at the Memphis Music Mansion" is now available! Recorded in 2017 with George Slupick on drums and Charlie Hunter on 7-string guitar. Order it here!

In early 2020 The Canada Council of the Arts awarded Michael a grant from its Concept to Realization program to compose and record an album for Strings and Brazilian percussion. Later that year, during a lull in the pandemic he recorded with a stellar group featuring Mauro Refosco, Guilherme Monteiro, Rogerio Bocatto, Skye Steele, Chris Hoffman and Michael Bates. Michael also rearranged new versions of Merle the Pearl (Elevated) and The Meadows (Blake Tartare). The album, titled Dance of the Mystic Bliss will be released in the near future at some point. Stay tuned!

Slow Poke at Home has been remastered by the legendary Gene Paul. Listen to this classic and more of Michael's albums on bandcamp.
